      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

The Gambler is missing

Thanks a bunch for re-posting that. Quite the story. It is interesting the difference between the perspective of sister (peace) and John's climbing partner (sadness) when reflecting on the story/ending of John's disappearance. I think climbers, on the whole, take little consolation in the whole "at least they died doing what they loved" explanation. At least for me, the death of a fellow climber (especially a friend) is an all too real reminder of the chances I take heading into the hills. The sadness comes when thinking that the activity you love could cause your family great pain some day and, at the same time, realizing that quitting isn't much of an option either.
